Great, did they scan it? I have had it before where label is less but the price has increased. Will try my local later.

Dunno if its in every store but if the price tag shows one but online shows another price, you received the lower price in my local Cex (had that with a switch price being different by about 15 quid)

That’s good to know, I will query it if it happens again but it is a rare occurrence (it was old 360 games that had gone backward compatible).
I've had this happen too.. I'd always check online for availability, prices etc
And they sometimes have prices different from what in store
I asked one time and they said with different price changes sometimes they hadn't time to change label :-)
Toilet paper is cheaper.
Liked 18 - miles better than 17 . This is free on EA access by the way if you have an xbox.
I bought one of these at £3.50 about two weeks ago in Gateshead Metrocentre, but when I went in there the other day I noticed that it had gone up to £5. I'm surprised the OP's one scanned at the lower price.

Been struggling to understand how CEX are going to survive the next year operating in the way they are. The majority of stock is completely over priced when compared with new stock at Amazon, or even places such as PC World / Argos. For example, a Camo PS4 controller is currently going for £55 in store second hand, however it is currently being sold for £45 at PC World (plus we all know new PS4 controllers often hit the £35 mark). Another example is PS4 Lego Batman, being sold second hand for £20 but is available at Argos new for £16 and Amazon for £12.

I like CEX and want to support them, I am not one to chase the latest releases and will happily wait 6 months for a second hand copy but finding it very hard to support them at the moment when the majority of their prices are some distance away from being competitive.

Apologies as this is unrelated to the post, just fancied a rant. I also notice FIFA 18 PS4 for 50p in Telford before Christmas!

It's a simple model. And completely different business model to the likes of Amazon/Argos etc.

Cex want you to trade your old stuff to offset the price. That's how they make their money.

You want an item that's £20. You trade in 2 items for £5 each. You pay the remaining £10 for the item.

Cex then sell them two items you traded in for £15 each. Meaning theoretically they have taken £40 for a £20 item that they probably paid £10 for or less.

But of course it's likely that person buying the items you traded in, are also trading in themselves...

You couldn't trade in that old box set of 24 that you're never going to watch again at Argos and when I go to Cex, the majority of people trade in before purchasing.

And of course phones, the margins are good with tech.

I can't imagine Cex will be going anywhere soon. They have the monopoly, with little to no competition in most areas they are situated. They have stores strategically set up all over the country and of course Europe
I’ve got Fifa 18 for sale PS4....how much would cex give me? 50p?

As others have said, it’s a pawn shop and a franchise one at that. There are others like ‘cash converters’ and ‘cash generators’ but they don’t have the masses of stock that people would want to offset their tech stuff against. I only use them to make money, I’ve never handed them my cash. 99% of people use them but are handing over money. They are helping me and I am helping them. It’s a Delboy Dream.

Just to add to what people previously stated as reasons they wont go down - some people impulse buy after browsing (and CeX has a colorful layout to attract people to browse); Others dont bother researching because they dont care for the 3-4 quid they would save.

Vouchers play a massive role for CeX. Many items when traded in give you exactly what you would get from eBay after fees (in voucher ofcourse). If you fancy something there, its worth saving the hassle for yourself. Because they have a physical shop and are a monopoly, they are able to charge more and get away with 3rd party fees ebay sellers might have.
